April 2020 Newletter

How are you doing? I truly hope you are staying healthy.

As we navigate these extremely challenging and uncharted waters, it is so important to connect. I hope my short newsletter brings a smile and some welcome, color-filled abstract art to your day. We really are in this together.

Even during the darkest hours, I feel gratitude. I am especially appreciative of you, of all of the medical professionals who are on the frontlines of the pandemic saving lives, and of the scientists who are working to develop a vaccine. 

Seeing the Light

A Virtual Art Show and More

Each spring, the Abstract Art Collective sponsors a major juried art show. This year the Exhibition is entitled: "Open to Abstraction." 

The esteemed juror Jeremy Tessmer selected two of my paintings for this important show. Jeremy Tessmer is the Gallery Director and Curator of vintage American art at Sullivan Goss. My two pieces are Collection and Seeing the Light (shown above).

Appropriately, the physical exhibition was cancelled due to the pandemic. Fortunately, the beautifully curated show is on line for everyone to experience. To see the entire Virtual Exhibition, just click here. What do you think about this approach? I hope you enjoy it.

Moving Forward

New Art and Quote of the Month

While social distancing, I have been inspired to create several new paintings. Like others, I have sought to find and feel warmth and progress as we flatten the curve.

When I painted Ablaze (above), I was thinking about the hot and complex fires we had in our wood stove at our cabin in Alaska. They were so intense, but at the same time comforting and beautiful. Can you feel warmth emanating from the painting?

On the beach and on trails I like to look at footprints and animal tracks. There is a sense of going someplace with determination. My painting Moving Forward (above) reflects this. Together, we will move forward.

Which leads me to my monthly quote, from Queen Elizabeth:

"We will succeed -- and that success will belong to every one of us. We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again."

Thank you for reading my newsletter and for supporting original contemporary abstract art. I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards and healthy wishes,
